Good morning and happy Friday friends! Today is a great day. Do you know why? Because it is the kickoff of the Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Sale!!
Now if you are an avid Sephora shopper then you know that Sephora does not have sales often, so when they do its usually the time to stock up on favorites or to buy those more expensive items you’ve been eyeing but just never pulled the trigger.
So this sale is called the Beauty Insider Appreciation Sale because Sephora is revamping their Beauty Insider program just a bit. They are making the benefits for the higher levels a bit better and giving a few more options, like choosing between a birthday gift or 250 reward points.
I personally think this has been a long time coming. I shop at Sephora and Ulta exclusively for my makeup needs. Ulta’s rewards program is significantly better then Sephora. At both stores you can earn points with each purchase but at Ulta those points can be redeemed for money off a future purchase whereas at Sephora those points could only be redeemed for small samples of products which weren’t necessarily all that great. So it’s great that Sephora is listening to their customers and revamping their Beauty Insider program and having a sale to kick it off!
The sale starts TODAY! For Rouge members they get an extra week to shop and they get 20% off their purchase. The sale for the VIB and Insider levels starts next Friday, August 30th and get 15% and 10% off respectively. The sale ends for everyone on September 3rd. So I wanted to share with you today what items are on my sale wish list.
I had picked up a 500 point reward from Sephora of the Sunday Riley acne line. Ironically, just as I had I ended up getting a big hormonal breakout. I used the Saturn sulfur mask on it just as a spot treatment and that breakout was almost gone the next day. I could not believe how fast it worked! This mask is a little on the pricier side so I plan on picking it up during the sale. If you have acne or hormonal/cystic breakouts I highly recommend you look at this!
The next items that are on the list are from Jouer. If you follow beauty influencers on social media then you have heard them talk about Jouer for years but they are now being carried at Sephora. People have raved about their liquid lipsticks and lip toppers so I have both of them on my list for this sale.
Another lip product I’m eyeing is the Wonder Drops from Sugar. This is a lip treatment and supposed to help smooth and treat your lips. I have dry lips all the time, doesn’t matter how much water I drink or how much balm I slather on, my lips are dry. So this sounded like something that might help and I will pick up during the sale.
Another new product I want to try is the Dior Backstage foundation. I’ve heard lots of great reviews on this and how beautiful it looks on the skin. I definitely want to give this a try.
Another new face product I want to try is the Milk Blurring face powder. I already love the blur stick and blur spray, why not try the blur powder too! At this point I should just pick up the entire blur line because so far I’ve loved everything I’ve tried from it!
This is an old and a new. The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara has been a holy grail of mine for years so this purchase is more of a restock. I want to pick up the 20th anniversary edition since it has this beautiful pink glitter packaging that will match the eyeshadow palette I already picked up (and you should too!)
Another repurchase on my list is a new beauty blender. The one I have is still in great shape but I just wanted to pick up a back up in a new fun color like this sapphire blue!
The last item on my list is the Prep Rally from Drybar. This is a leave in detangler and heat protector. I’ve used the Verb Leave In treatment for years and its great and I love it, but I just wanted to try something new!
These are just some of the things I have on my wish list. Do you plan on shopping the Sephora Sale and what items are on your list? Is there anything that you think I need to add to mine??
Happy shopping and have a great weekend!
